Vancouver Apple Store
The first Apple Store in the Canadian city of Vancouver, or its home province of British Columbia, is scheduled to open this Saturday, May 24th. The store is located at 701 West Georgia Street within the Pacific Centre Mall, and on its opening day, will operate from 10AM to 7PM. Sunday hours are 11AM to 6PM; Monday and Tuesday return to the Saturday schedule, but Wednesday throguh Friday, the store will be open until 9PM.
As at the Brandon, Florida location opening on the same day, standard services will be available. Of note though is that Pacific Centre visitors are encouraged to "learn the basics of Apple TV, iPhone or the Mac at a free Getting Started workshop," despite the fact that the iPhone is not currently sold in the Canada. It is however due on Rogers by the end of the year, possibly as soon as June.
